Subject: Good entertainment
This film is good entertainment in a civilized society. Consider the time it was made - some 60 years ago. At the time the baby boomers were being born and there was demand for everything. Happy times.

Today, this film could not and would not be made. Firstly, there is no actor, who could do the tricks done by Danny Kaye. Secondly, the society has become non-functional - just consider hurricane Kathrina, transfer of production to China, high foreign debt, TV ads of pharmaceutical or insurance companies etc.
If I am not mistaken, too many of us are involved in activities we dislike. But on the other hand, so many of us want to live in a civilized society that the change will come. And this film will again be appreciated as what it is - good entertainment.

Subject: It's good
Once again can we be over analytic about a fun movie?
For public domain this is a good movie and probably should be rated higher than the Bowery Boys.
These are not art movies you know.
This one should be watched so should get more than 3 stars, so I'll give it 5 hoping it will raise it up further on the list.

Subject: Mixed bag...
Not Danny Kaye's finest moment by a longish chalk but nevertheless many fine moments enliven this generally entertaining film. Top kudos goes to Elsa 'Bride of Frankenstein' Lanchester as the Mayor's wife (more Emma Bovary than Lady Macbeth, and - curiously - just like zis woman I know), with honourable mentions for Walter Catlett as Colonel Castine and Gene Lockhart as the Mayor. The genuinely amusing Medicine Show musical sequence at the beginning of the film offers a refreshing antedote to Neil Diamond's Brother Love guff. Kaye was a great comedian, but Ah! how many great comedians have been let down by bad writers...

(Eeek... and the film is based on Nikolai Gogol's The Government Inspector - a truly truly revolutionay piece of theatre in 1830's Russia)

I enjoyed watching this movie. It had many funny scenes and was a good movie. Considering this movie was made in 1949 it was well made.

Subject: Not funny.
Sorry to all those dozens of Danny Kaye fans the world over, but The Inspector General just isn't funny. If you want funny, go watch The Court Jester; that at least has a couple of funny scenes. Even The Secret Lives of Walter Mitty was funnier than this.

This film puts the decay in D. Kaye.
